birds by vruba (via migurski)

Mostly pigeons. From a milk bar in Carroll Gardens, Brooklyn. I did this:
ffmpeg -i /Users/char/Pictures/IMG_1369.MOV -vcodec png frame%05d.png;
convert -evaluate-sequence Min *.png birds.png
In other words, it’s all the darkness.

Pareidoloop by Phil McCarthy @phl (via @kellan)
adamnorwood:

What happens if you write software that generates random polygons and the software then feeds the results through facial recognition software, looping thousands of times until the generated image more and more resembles a face? Phil McCarthy’s Pareidoloop. Above, my results from running it for a few hours. Spooky.

Rorschmap by James Bridle http://booktwo.org/notebook/rorschmap/
The plane of Google Maps has an up and a down; it also has an in and an out: the zoom between tile layers, the moment of transference, of refocussing and resolution. What if we could fold digital maps like the dymaxion, go truly into them?
